Aldo "Michael John" Valentino Romolo

January 1, 1970 — January 1, 1970

Aldo “Michael John” Valentino Romolo departed this life on November 12 after a lengthy health battle for which he defied the odds too many times to count. Aldo was a tinkerer, a dreamer, and fixer of broken gadgets who wanted nothing more than to take care of everyone, especially his wife, Helen (Witkowskij). He was a father and most enthusiastic champion of his only child, Jason (Alice), showing all of us what it means to support and love unconditionally. Whether fishing, building LEGO, exchanging silly emoji’s and voice memos or playing hours of games, he adored and was adored by his 3 grandchildren, Stella, Ava, and Brando. He is predeceased by his dear parents, Ovidio and Anna and brother, Frank and leaves behind his beloved and heartbroken siblings Dora (Benito) and Mario. He was known for his joyful and loving humour and was always ready with words of wisdom and a listening ear to his many nieces and nephews. Aldo was a hairstylist; training under Vidal Sassoon as a young man and eventually founding his own company, Special Effects in Hair. He was proud to have many loyal clients over his 40+ year career who will miss his fellowship and talent and are saddened to have to find a new stylist.

Aldo was stubbornly determined to look on the bright side, even in the darkest moments and will be greatly missed by his many friends and family. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to United Way of Toronto and York Region.
